Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have a happy blended family, something they have become renowned for. The celebrity couple both have two children from previous relationships, and everyone gets on incredibly well. And while some children aren't too sure about new people in their lives when they first meet, that wasn't the case for Max and Emme, 12, as J-Lo has revealed they got on with Alex from the get-go. During her appearance at Oprah Winfrey's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus tour on Saturday, the star discussed easing her children into her relationship with Alex. When she asked them whether they liked him, they were enthusiastic. "It was like no, they really, they really liked him," she said.

The Jenny from the Block hitmaker then recalled how her son Max had said something during the early days of her dating Alex that made her even more confident that their families would perfectly blend. "Max even said something, I remember this conversation with him, even though it's like three years ago now. He said something like: 'Alex is the only one who doesn't ever get mad at me.'" Jennifer explained that Max is the one who always gets into trouble at home because he has so much energy, and is constantly running into things.
